Exchange students do not attend SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration). SOAR is intended for degree-seeking UW students only.
Instead, all incoming exchange students are required to attend exchange student orientation. Orientation is held a few days before the start of the semester. This orientation is tailored specifically to exchange and visiting students.
